God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything

>With his unique brand of erudition and wit, Hitchens describes the ways in which religion is man-made. "God did not make us," he says. "We made God." He explains the ways in which religion is immoral: We damage our children by indoctrinating them. It is a cause of sexual repression, violence, and ignorance. It is a distortion of our origins and the cosmos. In the place of...

God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything Reviews

  • Melly
    As a fellow Atheist, Mr. Hitchens is preaching to choir, so to speak, in this informative, captivating work in which Hitchens judiciously provides historically documented and personal examples of what he sees as an ever-increasing war being waged by a variety of religious fundamental organizations. ...

    Witty, fact-based, amusing rant. I laughed out loud many times!I think part of the rage Hitchens encounters derives from the fact that he is funny. If he put on a scholarly, serious tone, and imitated the behaviour of priests in the way he poses his arguments, he would not be hated in the way he is....

    I'm probably going to court some hateful comments by trying to write a review of this book, but I think Hitch would be proud that I am making the attempt.I have been reading Hitch's work for years, including his essays on mortality and atheism, so I knew the gist of his arguments against religion, b...

But he is particularly fine on the noxious ways in which religion intersects with the most murderous forms of politics. And o...

    I read this months ago and never got around to the review...Simply stated, Hitchens puts into words all the reasons I shy away from organized religion. The prejudices, sexism, the overall foolishness... At the same time, he seems oblivious to the fact that there are religious people out there doing ...

    There's a debate I keep getting into about the difference between atheism and religious belief: someone claims that atheism is just another faith, and I disagree. This seems like a good place to summarize my objections.I would first like to draw a clear distinction between dogmatic and sceptical ath...

    Let me begin this review by telling you that I'm an atheist. In fact, I'm with Douglas Adams in calling myself a "radical atheist", just to make sure that everyone gets the point. Yes, really. It's in my profile.So my opinion about this book really has nothing to do with my personal convictions. Wel...
